Grateful for You.

Last weekend we had the opportunity to go quading with some friends. We had such a fun time with them and enjoyed the sunshine too. On our way home our friends received a phone call that their daughter had been in accident and that the ambulance was on scene. I tell you we couldn't make it home fast enough at that point. The accident was bad enough that their daughter had to be air-vacked (sp?) to Children's Hospital. She is doing as well as she can be but has a long road to recovery. Thinking about you Kyla!!

It's moments like that when reality sets in again. It makes you look at all the petty things in life and question why you bothered with them and why you didn't just concentrate on the "good stuff. I encourage you to take a moment in the next few days to tell your loved ones you love them and send a friend or family member a card "just because".

And if you couldn't get...this is my card to all of you! Because I am grateful for you stopping by my blog :)



I used a variety of different copic markers to give this flower a soft appearance. You'll also see the button has been threaded with patterned paper.
